Matchroom boss Hearn has shaped majority of the sport over last 12 months
Promoter Eddie Hearn has shared a letter recieved from WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendosa, congratulating him on excellent service to the sport.
Even throughout the pandemic, the Matchroom boss has consistently bucked the trend by putting high profile shows on, not least capped by the 'Rumble on the Rock' in Gibraltar this weekend, where Dillian Whyte faces Alexander Povetkin in a rematch anticipated by the whole country. The first bout was in another of Hearn's innovations, at Fight Camp - staged in his own back garden.
Under his stewardship, Matchroom have put on fights for the biggest names in world boxing, including Anthony Joshua and Canelo.
Mendosa states in his letter that Hearn's achievements will "transcend this lifetime", with Hearn's legacy set to go down as one of the greatest in the sport.
